Both the original 1962 version and the 1991 version were filmed in the region, but the more modern Cape Fear spent more time down south. Cape Fear tells of a convicted rapist who is released from prison after his 14 year-long sentence.
He tracks down the family of the lawyer who defended him, or failed to do so in his eyes, to seek revenge. Directed by Martin Scorsese, this incarnation stars Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte, Jessica Lange, and Juliette Lewis. Robert Mitchum, Gregory Peck, and Martin Balsam, who starred in the original, play small roles in the remake. The swamp scene was filmed in John U. Lloyd State Park in Hollywood, Florida.
Filmed In: Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood, Florida; Savannah, Georgia
